Thanks Justin.

I thought there was a doc in the repos somewhere that explained some
of the overall design goals. I wanted to link to that but could not
find it. Am I just thinking of one of your posts to dev@?

I was going to mention the multiple requests but then was not sure how
much that and pipelining were the same. So thanks for clarifying.
